    I would like a kind if abridged drug guide. I've got a Palm Zire and it's only got like 2mb of memory and all of the other drug guides I've tried to install (Davis, Epocrates) there's just not enough memory. This was given to me as a gift and while I appreciate it, it just doesn't do enough. I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find a smaller file of a drug guide to install? I'll be getting a newer one with more memory later this year, but this is for just an immediate need.

    If you have an S-card, you can download some files into your S-card. It took me 4 hours over the weekend to figure out of to save space on the external memory. All the file that ends with prd, you can put on the s-card, and prc, on the external memory. That way, you wont run out of space, because some programs can only run on the external. I hope you understand. If you need help, send me a private message. I will walk you through.

    Trying to find a Flash Card program that I can use on Windows Mobile. Silly Nursing Student that I am wants to build flash cards and keep them on the PDA so I can flash thru them whenever I have a few free moments.

    If the program works on Windows that would be great.

    I thought about getting MobiPocket Creater and just using it, but I was wondering if anybody has a better program than just making them as little books.

    I was able to download micromedex, however I am having trouble opening the program. I get the message this application requires Crossfire Client 5.6. This is a paid program. Anyone know anything about this? Thanks for your help.

    here is a list of all the free programs i have on my palm tx. there are many more available, of course, but these are the ones i have found most useful. some might have been mentioned before, so forgive me if i am repeating another's suggestions.
    i am leaving out time-limited and info-disabled trials, but including some full-featured shareware. all of these will work on a compatible palm, some have pocket pc versions. some resources are only available to students currently in a nursing program, and a few to licensed professionals only.

    merck medicus has some great resources available to licensed pros:as mentioned before, currently enrolled healthcare students get free access to the pda-based clinical tools and information from micromedex. i have found the information to be helpful, but it runs slowly on my tx, so i only have the alternative meds and toxicology, and use merck and epocrates (epocrates, home of the world's most widely used mobile medical references) for drugs and lab info.

    i just found this great nclex study resource today: thomson delmar learning's nursing review series

    pateintkeeper is the best patient tracking software i have found. there's a bit of a learning curve, but i have had little trouble configuring it to suit my needs. keeps track of vitals, labs, meds, and much more. i can even set of a list of tasks and set alarms for them. you can download a trial version here. as far as i can tell it's fully functional and you can take as long as you need to try it out.

    adobe acrobat has a really great palm version. it will convert any .pdf file to palm format, though the results are not always perfect:
    adobe reader for palm os
    adobe reader for pocket pc
    adobe reader for symbian os

    john hopkins has a great antibiotic guide: [font=verdana, helvetica, arial][color=#006699]download antibiotic guide

    wiser is a designed to assist first responders in hazardous material incidents. there's info on hazardous substances, including substance identification support, physical characteristics, human health information, and containment and suppression advice. my favorite feature is the unknown substance id--really cool! download

    the entire usda nutrient database can be downloaded here.

    mac os users have free access to the excellent flashcard program studycard studio at, which includes a read-only palm program.

    So the free version of epocrates is good? I've been using a drug guide book as well as a 2007 iv med guide book, and I'm tired of carrying so much around! Will epocrates cover this, or should I get the PDA programs made by the manufactuers of my books? I've also been looking at Skyscape Constellation....

    Has anyone's Clinical Xpert expired yet? Mine says so many days unless I dock it, which I do, and it still says that. Help??


    P.S. What about ePocrates? Does its free version ever expire?

    Clinical Xpert subscriptions expire at different times, depending on who is sponsoring your subscription. You can check the expiration date on the account management page.
